Parts of Upper Aljunied Road have been permanently closed to traffic from Sunday (12 March), in light of plans to transform it into a Heritage Walk.
With the closure, a new realigned Upper Aljunied Road opened to traffic on the same day, said the Housing and Development Board (HDB).
“The realignment of Upper Aljunied Road paves the way for the pedestrianisation of the existing Upper Aljunied Road and the creation of a new Bidadari Heritage Walk that will preserve the rich heritage and memories of the estate.
“Lined with a canopy of mature trees, the 700m Heritage Walk will recount the history and stories of Bidadari’s rich heritage, including prominent personalities of the past.”
The Heritage Walk will stitch the future Alkaff Lake with the Bidadari Park to create a contiguous park for Bidadari residents to walk and cycle around the estate.
The HDB has launched some 4,800 flats in six projects in Bidadari since November 2015. Another 1,340 flats will be offered for sale in May.
